Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ
Ready for a two-hour, all-you-can-eat BBQ? With fatty cuts of pork belly, tender cow tongue, hourmon (offal), and marbled slices of boutique beef, like Kuroge Wagyu? Here’s the catch—it’s a chain. But Gyu-kaku, especially popular with students and often hidden on the upper floors of office towers, is a cheap, smoky yakiniku (barbecued meat) joint, where diners cram side by side to prepare their own charcoal grilled meat in a slightly raucous atmosphere and wash down with highball after highball. (The deals are often all-you-can-drink too!) They’re anything but luxurious, but many locations fill up on weekends and don’t usually take reservations, so go early or late to ensure a table.
